When it comes to doing simple things such as making phone calls, the 68-year-old has been struggling. He shared, "After all these years of having someone make my calls for me, I can no longer operate a telephone. I don't know what to do with my hair, either. But I'll never wear makeup again, so that's no problem."

We're not exactly surprised, given he has had assistants for the past 33 years! Fortunately for him, two of the women who have worked for him will be helping out until he is good on his own.

But it's not all bad. The father-of-one has been enjoying quality time with his 11-year-old son, Harry. He shared, "I love fishing with my son. Any kind of trout fishing where you can stand in the river is just delightful."

Good for you, Dave — after a long and successful career, it's time you enjoy quality time with your family!
